Buying a New Ruger 10/22

Buying a new Ruger 10/22 is as simple as visiting a local sporting goods dealer and making the request. Buyers should, however, compare prices between dealers in their local area to find the best price.

Buying a Used Ruger 10/22

Rimfire rifles are not exposed to great stress or pressure and will last for decades even with regular use. Buyers of used Ruger 10/22s should use a borelight or flashlight to examine the barrel, action and chamber areas of the rifle for rust, pitting or other signs of corrosion. Damage to the finish of the metal or wood will not impact use but should lower the price.
